I have had a wonderful time on the weekend digging through both my stash and scrap bin, creating huge piles of messed up fabric. My search was for just the right prints to create the vision of a quilt that has been whizzing around in my head. Something "low volume" but with a hint of color and definitely scrappy, very scrappy.
It feels like I am on the right path. It's definitely scrappy, and I have included a wide variety of fabric designs, styles and fabric types, including hand screen printed, vintage (reclaimed bed linens), Japanese imports, feedsack fabric, as well linen, and modern quilting cottons.
I finished sewing the quilt top on Sunday evening, but promptly decided that bigger would indeed be better. So, today was spent going through my fabric stash once again, cutting more squares and re-jigging the layout.
An usually productive weekend!
